Mom’s Lucky Charm Scrapbook Page

I’m not usually one to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. But, I always love taking pics of my girl and I love scrapbooking, so I decided to create a scrapbook page highlighting recent photos of my daughter as my “lucky charm”. I’ll walk you through how I created this simple layout.

Supplies:

Instructions:

I used a green piece of Core’dinations cardstock as the base of my layout. I matted my photos by simply cutting a rectangle (approx 5x 6.5″) from white cardstock and then I tore a rectangle from purple Core’dinations cardstock that’s approximately 4.5×6.5″. I layered the mattes behind my photos and glued them together.

Now, I’ll explain how I made the  framed butterfly accent. Using my Cricut and Storybook cartridge, I cut a 4″ frame from the clover icon, using the accent/frame feature key. This created the clover frame. I then cut a square out of Core’dinations cardstock and light sanded it. The picture below shows a piece of the cardstock before sanding and then the sanded piece.

I used my tape runner and glued the frame to the square. Then, I flipped the frame and square over and slid my tape runner along the edges of the square to apply adhesive. I then tacked down some of the feathery green trim to the edge of the square as shown in the picture below:

Next, I cut 6 strips of white tulle approximately 4 or 5″ wide. I layered the tulle on top of each other in a way that they would be off-set from each other. I then glued them to the square using Aleene’s Tacky glue. Next, I turned the square right side up and glued it down to the page. I cut the butterfly using my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. I cut the butterfly with the details (holes) in it. I then cut a butterfly the same size in “blackout” mode, to create the white bottom  layer of the butterfly. Then I added the shamrock green bling pears to add bling to the white circles on the butterfly’s wings. I attached the butterfly to the square using 3D pop up glue dots.

I created the tulle flower in th lower left hand corner of my laying,  using a strip of lime green tulle that was approximately 18″ long. I am totally loving tulle, right now! It’s such a fun and versatile embellishment. So, I simply twirled the tulle and wrapped it in a circular fashion until I created something that looked like a rosette.

I then stapled through the center of it to hold it together. I added a strip of purple Core’dinations cardstock that I had wrapped up to create a tiny rosette and I glued that to the center of the green rosette I backed it with small pieces of the feathery green trim and green ribbon. Then I glued the entire flower to the page using Aleene’s Tacky glue.

Finally, to create the title for my page, I cut the label shapes and the letters using my Cricut and Storybook cartridge. After the green label was cut, I lightly sanded it to reveal the lighter green core of the cardstock. I used the basic Storybook font for the white letters, and then used the shadow feature and cut the letters from another shade of green Core’dination cardstock. Using my tape runner, I layered the letters and adhered them to the labels. I then glued the shamrock rhinestones to the labels using Aleene’s Tacky Glue. I attached the labels to the page using 3D Pop Up Glue Dots, to make it stand out from the page.
